Live Bait one day, Flats Fix the very next day. You can search it on the Internet, easily enough.
Sometimes presto chango does not work out for the better. Flats Fix is a doctoral-level case study.
When I was a grad student at nearby Baruch College, Live Bait was hopping with plenty of customers at the bar and at the tables. Conversations were flowing as smoothly as the beers on tap.
Well, I came to Flats Fix at 1 pm recently. What did I see? Six other customers at peak lunch time. In other words, the place wasn’t busy.
I ordered the $10 smoked chicken burrito. The portions were generous, but the entree was so mushy. The $11 Old Fashioned was good, but it was served in a rather small glass.
My server didn’t ask me how things were going. She pretty much ignored me throughout my visit. Actually, it was a blessing in disguise.
While eating my burrito at one end of the bar, another employee came literally right next to me in order to talk to my server.
He was badmouthing a customer who just left the place.
Hey, buddy, didn’t you realize there was a patron who overheard your comments? Is this what you call customer service?
After that, I didn’t stay around much longer. I lost my appetite. I quickly settled my tab.
I would suggest going to one of the eateries located within Madison Square Park, which is across the street.
